Decision making in its simplest form is the act of choosing between two or more courses of action.

                Sometimes decision making is hard. Some people put off making decisions by endlessly searching for more information or getting other people to offer their suggestions or opinions.

                Decisions need to be capable of being implemented. An effective decision-making process, therefore, needs to ensure that you are able to do so. And this feeling of you will be able to do comes when you have reasons behind your decision.  Reasoning is using the facts and figures in front of you to make decisions.

                When trying to make a good decision, a person must weigh the positives and negatives of each option in front of us and consider all the alternatives. For effective decision making, a person must be able to see the outcome of each option as well and after comparing all the options choose the best one.

                In making a good choice, we have to be first careful about the negatives like lack of information about the particular issue, or too many opinions from the people, lack of interest on the subject, planning, timing. All the above particulars should be considered in making a good decision.

Shall discuss in detail:



  • Lack of information:

Do not make a decision if you feel you do not have enough information. Always take some time to gather necessary information even if you don’t have enough time. Try to give priority to most important to your topic. It will be easy to you to take decisions if you choose which one is important to you.


  • Planning and timing:

Planning and timing are the most precious sometimes to you. Sometimes the timing you take decisions on particular moment give you a not only good but perfect decision. And planning is a must and should for anything we do. By planning accordingly we can take a perfect decision without any doubts. Because we will have all the useful information and we have planned according.

  • Don’t get confused with many options:

This is the main and confusing task. Because we will have multiple choice in hand. So definitely we get confused what to choose. We may think two options may help us out and we may get confused. This problem can often be resolved by getting every option together to decide what information is really important and why, and setting a clear timescale for decision making, including an information-gathering stage.

  • Lack of interest:

It always depends on the interest of the people on the particular thing. Even if we got all the positive ways, positive information if the person is not interesting in the subject this may lead to a big life’s mistake depends on the complex of the thing. So do follow all the above only if you are interested in making a good decision.
